Thank you for the model number.

Have you tried any program after you changed it to 3 ?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Not yet

OK, please set the Rinse aid to r05 and then try any program.

It should work perfectly fine after this, rinse aid is used so your glasses etc. are rinsed perfectly.

This User Manual will give you an idea on how to set rinse aid, water hardness etc.

After this in case if issue is still there then please contact Bosch and get this replaced under warranty.

Please let me know if you need me to clarify anything or if you have any additional questions-I am happy to help!

I hope you enjoyed your experience with Justanswer UK today.

Have a wonderful day.

Thank you.
